|All Tangled Up -- Groks Science Show 2014-12-03 - Samantha Thomas|
Particle entanglement is one of quantum mechanics’ strangest predictions. In fact, physicists have been trying to disprove it ever since they predicted it about 80 years ago. Here to untangle the issue for us is Dr. Jason Gallicchio, postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. He’ll help us understand exactly what it means for particles to be entangled and how he proposes to use quasars to test one of the only remaining alternative explanations for this counterintuitive phenomenon that...

|Physics in Mind -- Groks Science Show 2013-02-27 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
How does a biological system, like the brain, give rise to an emergent property, like the mind? Can quantum physics provide the answers? On this program, Prof. Werner R. Lowenstein discussed physics in mind.

|The Quantum Moment -- Groks Science Show 2015-01-21 - Samantha Thomas|
Since the theory of quantum mechanics became accepted, almost a century ago, we’ve had to get used to living in a world of quantum leaps, Schrodinger’s cats and uncertainty principles. But how well do we really understand the major philosophical implications of quantum mechanics? Today we’ll talk with Dr. Robert Crease, professor of philosophy at Stony Brook University, about how terms from quantum mechanics have found their way into everyday discourse and provided a new set of metaphors f...
